Each year the IABC Phoenix Copper Quill Awards program recognizes communication excellence in Arizona. As a professional communications organization, one of our goals with our awards program is to help communicators display the value of their hard work. A Copper Quill award distinguishes communicators and grabs the attention of clients, employers and fellow colleagues.
It is exciting to see the diverse range of individuals and teams who enter the competition, from corporate communicators and public relations professionals, to independent writers and academic institutions. Even though they all have different specialties, the one thing they have in common is a passion for developing communications that produce results and capture an audience’s attention.
Out of the 55 entries submitted in this year’s competition, 35 were selected to receive an award, including one Best of Best awarded to American Traffic Solutions. Last week, those winners were recognized by our chapter and fellow colleagues at the annual Copper Quill Awards ceremony. For those of you able to attended, we hope you enjoyed the celebration and had the opportunity to network with other award winning communications professionals. You can view winner photos and photos of the event on our Facebook page.
As a non-profit organization we are reliant on our supporters for making programs like this possible. We would like to thank our dedicated volunteers who have been working on the program year-round – on top of their full time jobs. Also, thanks to this year’s sponsors for their support and donations. As a non-profit organization we do not strive to make a profit on our awards program, we purely do it to give the recognition our fellow communications professionals deserve!
Last but not least, our most important supporters, YOU! Without your participation the Copper Quills wouldn’t exist. We hope this year’s program provided value to all who participated and we encourage participation again next year.
Congratulations to all 2012 Copper Quill Award winners!
2011-2012 IABC Phoenix Chapter President
2011-2012 VP Copper Quill Awards Program
